  • (2014-01-15) Boaz Rosenan: The good: Open-Source (on GitHub), very simple to use mostly useful. The bad: I cannot use it on other browsers (including mobile). The ugly: Very simplistic and incomplete logic for finding the effective domain.

  • (2013-07-25) Luke Hamburg: Using with Chrome 28. Does what it says, with a nice and well organized UI. Seems trustworthy (code is up on Github). Thanks for this!

    It would be great if your application could use newer and better hashing algorithms (Including SHA3 Family)
  • (2014-05-21, v:2.0.1) Jonathan Chen: Handling of non-US domains - .nz
    Your exception list will get bigger, as I'm experiencing the same issue, but for .nz based domains. eg: .co.nz, .net.nz, .org.nz, etc I would suggest that if the last component is a 2-letters in length, ie: a country-level TLD, it will default to using 3 components instead. Unfortunately, some non-US domains only use 2 components as well. The only long term solution I can see is to include the number of components in the "Profile"; ie all non-US, 3 component domains can be lumped together in one profile.
  • (2013-11-07, v:1.1.1) Tim McBlonderson: Handling of non-US domains
    Hi! Currently the password generator doesn't seem to deal with .com.au very well - the generated domain name for all Australian websites is just ".com.au". Furthermore, it can't remember that it has been overrridden for a particular website, so I have to reenter my choice every time! Is it possible that the default number of domain components to use could increase to 3 if the last component is a country-level TLD? e.g. ending in .uk or .au, it should include three components rather than 2 in the default? Thanks, Tim
